About the project

The Howard Smith Wharves terminal will be jointly funded by Council and the Howard Smith Wharves Consortium. The terminal is anticipated to initially service CityFerry services.

Council is working to determine the most appropriate location for the terminal and initial layouts. At this stage, the terminal is proposed to be positioned towards the upstream end at the River Shed building, subject to final investigations. 

Further information about the terminal design and timing of construction will be provided as the project progresses. Every effort will be made to minimise impacts and disruptions to Howard Smith Wharves during construction.

Council undertook river-based geotechnical investigations at the proposed location for the ferry terminal at Howard Smith Wharves in April 2019. 

Project timing

Council is progressing the design for the ferry terminal and is committed to keeping the community updated about the project as it progresses.
